Yet another preacher exposed for fraud.

A scumbag preacher from Ghana just got caught having an stage magic device that he used to trick people into believing that they had experienced a “miracle”. It gives an electric shock or can charge a spoon or make a light bulb seem to magically turn on and off. Apparently, there is a lot of churches popping up through Africa that claim they can cure AIDS.… read more “Yet another preacher exposed for fraud.”

Dogfighting

Michael Vick has been accused of fighting dogs at one of his homes in Virginia. The indictment was almost pornographic in it’s sensational brutalilty; he is accused of strangling, electrocuting and drowning dogs of his that lost.

America’s weight is growing faster than it population

I was refreshed to read a blog this morning that was very politically incorrect about the obese epidemic in America. Being obese is not something that our society should try make acceptable. Fat is a disease that is killing millions of people and causing various disabilities in millions more. Not only are they hurting themselves, but they are hurting others who have to pay for their medical and unemployment benefits via Social Security and Medicare.… read more “America’s weight is growing faster than it population”

The days before computers

How did people survive in the days before the internet and computers? I can’t imagine trying to have to maintain a file system instead of a database. Every time I wanted to open a file, I’d have to walk over to the files system, open a cabinet, hunt out the file i need, carry it back to my desk and open it and then reverse the process when I’m done.… read more “The days before computers”

Dante’s Inferno Frat Bar

Fletch and I were hanging out yesterday and went to a coffee shop on the Ave called Starlife and drank some coffee and played chess. Post chess, we walked up to a little park and Fletch hopped on the merry-go-round and I spun him around till he was nauseous. As we walked back towards Trader Joes, I saw a sign outside of Dante’s (a bar) that said “$2 wells” and wordlessly pointed to it and we both just turned and went in.… read more “Dante’s Inferno Frat Bar”

“Knocked Up”

Last night I went and saw “Knocked Up” with Fletcher and Arcadia. I was shocked to find it was actually a very good comedy. I recommend it. It’s about a stoner who hooks up with a career chick and gets her pregnant on a one-night stand and their ensuing adventures. The feel of the movie reminded me of “Swingers” (though not quite as good); there was lots of funny dialogue and raunchy situations.

Ridiculous method to correct conclusion

After reading an article about humanity’s need for space colonization to survive, I was reminded of some conclusions I came to in junior high.

If humanity is to have any chance of survival, it is absolutely imperative that our species begin to plant colonies wherever we can off-planet. It would be so easy to wipe us all out with a single stray asteroid, a new disease, chemical or nuclear warfare gone wrong, etc.… read more “Ridiculous method to correct conclusion”
